INSOLVENT COURT. FRIDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Browne. In re L. H. Lazarus [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

INSOLVENT COURT. FRIDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Browne. In re L. If. Lazaras Special meeting for the production of a Trust Deed by Mr N Lewis. Mr Harris appeared as Solicitor for Mr Lewis, and Mr Brewer for the insolvent. Mr Harris said he should be glad if Mr Brewer would state to the court what might have been his object in calling for the deed. Mr Brewer replied that he had already done so. The deed which purported to be for the benefit of Mr Lazarus' creditors, was not.under the 38th Sec tion of the Insolvent Act, a valid one, not having been signed.by a sufficient number of the creditors, and, therefore, Mr Lewis was not warranted by it in taking possession of the whole of the Insolvent's property. Under that deed there could be no equal distribution of the Insolvent's estate, seeing that it was not executed by the required three fourths in number and value of the creditors. With- out having that deed in his possession, the Commis- sioner was powerless to act; and it was. for ...

OURSELVES. It is with a feeling of gratulation, that we invite at- tention to the improved appearance, of the Journal, as manifested by its issue of to-day, with its new title, new column-rules, and a further enlargement of its space ; we, also, confidently challenge comparison, with our Contemporaries, whose poor and paltry appearance we have put to shame by the production of a Journal, hitherto unrivalled in the Colony. We may add, that the Literary feature, which we havo introduced, will be continued with increased ex-   ertion.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

CAN TRANSPORTATION PUNISH- MENT BE REVIVED. From the Spectator; The Judges, the Police, and the Executive Officers of our prison system as it is, have expressed from time to time a general opin- ion that the criminal classes are moro awed by the puuishmeut of transportation than of imprisonment. Mr Justice Erle thinks that it is more impressive in the delivery of the sentence. Police Sergeant Loomc has heard convicts speak with greater apprehension of being transported than of being imprisoned. On the other hand, Mr Henry Mayhew, who has conversed with thieves, gives the exactly opposite opinion. There is other evidence showing that the subject is, at least, in doubt ; and, if we refer the question to the arbitrament of statistics, we are still le...

Commercial Intelligence. Mercury Office, Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

Commercial Intelligence Mercury Oflice, Saturday Evening. The principal event during the week, in a Com- mercial point of view, was the General Meeting of   the C. Commerce, and the adoption of the Report, which, we regret to say, has not afforded that gene- ral satisfaction to the mercantile and commercial   interests, which was anticipated. There prevails an opinion, that the Chamber is, in some sort, exclu- sive, and that many persons would be glad to be- come members, if any inducement was held out to them. It is obvious the more extended the proprieo tary of such a Body, the more useful and influential   would be its operation, and we throw out this hint, for the more extensive benefits of an enlarged and more co-ordinate Chammber of Comerce. The markets continue dull, and Breadstuffs are gradually declining ; the wheat from Adelaide, per " Rapid " and " Abbey " was sold on Friday at 6s. 6d., 6s. 9d., and 7s. according to sample, and from ...

Miscellaneous Shipping [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

Miscellaneous Shipping By our advertising columns it will be seen that the   Tasmanian Steam Navigation Company desirous to meet the requirements of the northern side of the Island, announce the "Tasmania" to call at Launceston en route to Sydney. The clipper ship Sir. W. F. Williams sailed on Satur- day, after a somewhat lengthened stay in our port. Barely has a stranger gained so much esteem and good will amongst us, as has Captain Rees, whose affa- bility and seaman-like qualities were appreciated by all, who knew him ; his officers were, also men of the right sort, and equally respected. This clipper takes to Liverpool a full cargo ; namely, 1604 bales of wool, 32 bales of leather, 18 tons bark, 45 bundles of whale- bone, 74 casks of sperm oil, and 1 box of gold dust all but the latter, legitimate colonial produce. Although sailing later than the Wellington and Derwentwater, the clipper, under her able commander, expects to reach England before either, but be that a...

To the Editor of the Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

To tlie Editor of the Meicury SIB,-Your late article upon the Pawn broking trade as carried on in this city, sur- prised me not a little. I had no idea that usury could have been so long carried on to the extent of 433 per cent per annum with- out provoking tlie interference of the Legis- lature. When such extortion exists it is in- deed time that public attention should he aoused, and too much praise cannot] be given you for your exposure of tho abuse. As a proof of how very differently the trade referred to is carried on in Ireland, I give a scale of churges to which depositors in that country arc subject : No interest charged on sums below one shilling. s. s. d. n lwiduoluueediug 2 . . ... i per month . 2 . 4 . . ... 1 4 . 6 . . ... 1 6 . 8 . . .".. 2 ... 8 . 10 . . ... 2J IO .ia -. . ... 3 . 12 . 14 . . ... 3i . 14 . 10 . . ... 4 IG . l8 . . ... 4i l8 . 2D . . ... 5 i This scale being 5d per month for £1 is 5s per annum, or 25 per cent, a rate of interest considered very high bu...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. Wo do not identity our optnto.H ii 1th those ot our correspondents MB. CHAMPS STATEMENT THAT Mu. CALDEIt HAD N01' COMPLAINED tflRST TO THE GOVERNMENT. To the Editor of the Mercury. Sin,-This statement so recently advanced by The Colonial Secretary in tho House of Assembly is, strange as it may appear, entirely without foundation. It is well known that Mr Calder has for moro than twelve months past, made the most urgent appeals to the Government on the subject of his promotion, in which he has over and oyer again set forth his claims almost in. the very words of his late Petition to the Legislature. . This cannot bo confuted ; neither can it be denied that usually after a tedious and weari- some delay, even to making the heart sick, Mr Calder has received to eaeh appeal a reply from Mr Champ, either admitting his merits and claims, or promising him promotion a? speedily, as posssible. Mr Champ is well aware that it would have been sheer, madncitëon _ the part...

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. We quote from the Empire : There has been a little more animation in the spirit trade, and several parcels of Martell's brandy have ex- changed hands. Geneva is also firm. Rums have been purchased by the trade principally for the up-country use. Breadstuffs remain without any important alteration; there have been several extensive sales of California and other flours. Some of these being more or less damaged were disposed of at very low rates. Our stocks are very large, and even, should the foreign flour be taken up our own harvests have been so abundant that it is suppo- sed we can readily meet the year's demand. The Chili Flour Company quote fine flour at £13 per ton Sydney made flour, £17 ; and California, £16, and do   not seem disposed to sell under these figures. We quote fine and seconds flour at £18 and £I6 per ton respectively. Friday Evening January 23, 1857. FLOUR AND GRAIN.-Mill prices remain as at last quotations. Messrs. T. Barker and C...

LATEST EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 2 February 1857

LATEST EUROPEAN. The limes hints (lint the Emperor of the French lias resolved to discard the council if not to dispense with the services of Count Wulewski, and other pro-Russian advisers' "He (the Emperor)" observes tho Times, "has had those, not about him but away from him, who have only been too glad to perform the part of an Emperor without it's conscience and it's responsibility. That state of things is happily now past, and Napoleon the Third lias had a lesson that even a blunt and plain spoken fiiend is better than à smooth flatterer or a treacherous servant. Wc believe, too, that he feels as wc feol, that the alliance of the two countries is next to the moral courage mid natural resources of each -their greatness, honour, and support. That alliance demands perfect mutual confidence and co-operation-always necessary, and never so much so as where there are other powers so weak or so compromised as not to be entirely relied upon.

MISCELLANEOUS. IMPORTANT DISCOVER*.-THE DETECTION , OF MURDER.-A scries of experiments have' recently Leen made by Dr. Pollok, an oculibt of this city, (says the Chicago Press, of the 17th October,) to test the truth of an article ' published some timo since by a celebrated-' physician in England, which alleged that the last scene viewed by a dying mau would re-. ni ¡ii n impressed upon the retina as docs the L impression upon a daguci reotype plate. In each experiment that l)r. Pollok has made, . he has found that an examination of tho re- tina of an eye with a microscope reveals a wonderful as well as a beautiful sight, aud l that in almost every instance there was a clear, distinct, and marked impression. We put these facts upon recoid in the hopes of awaken- ing an interest iu the subject, that others may be induced to enter upon these inter- esting experiments, and the causa of science advanced.

THE MERCURY. ^ublt'slieo íHononjí, íHrtmetflraa * jjiíoag MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 2, 1857. THE times arc provocative of speech, and men find words under the pressure of taxation, just ns they become emphatic altho not eloquent when their toes are trodden upon.' MR. CHAPMAN'S budget has had the merit, questionable as it may be, of bringing forward men who would otherwise have remained in silent obscu- rity-of rendering the garrulous more talkative, and the loud uproarious; and to him we owe it that we now number Mr. Guesdon among our politicians, and Mr, Alfred Nicholas in the list of our authors. The unwonted circumstance of a platform harangue brought Mr. Gues- don into prominence, and Mr. Nicholas comes before the world in a pamphlet of eight pages in the shape of a letter to the minister whose scheme he condemns. We must admit that we have heard Mr. Gues- don more eloquent in his rostrum than he was in the new market, and that the life of Mr. Nicholas's essay will be con- fined ...
